Topic: Best 80's Perfumes

I have very recently become enamored withperfumes from the 80's era and was needing suggestions on some to buy that may still be in circuation. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I know Rapture is from the early 90's but it just has such an 80's vibe! So far I am dangerously in love with these two

http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.609.jpg Chanel Coco - it smells rather dated now but it is a masterpiece and will become cool again one day I'm surehttp://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.248.jpg Calvin Klein Obsession I have vintage and new version and I like both.  It seems to suit my skin, it's the only perfume that I've ever worn that has garnered compliments from completely strange men on the street.

Never give up on a dream just because of the time it will take to accomplish it.
The time will pass anyway.

Re: Best 80's Perfumes

I've worn Samsara off and on since the 80's and I think the latest reformulation is great.

Think before you speak rather than speak first then have a whole world of regret later.

http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.1709.jpg  Elizabeth Taylor Passion -I don't care what anyone says, I adore this power fume. It's so intense, almost scary, even. Yet, once you wear it, it's anything but scary. Does not even smell cheap, provided one uses only one spray. I love it!


http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.314.jpg  Cartier Panthere

http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.1889.jpg  Giorgio Beverly Hills Giorgio -It's so distinctive... you know it when you smell it. For this reason, it deserves placement among the best 80's perfumes.




Two honorable mentions go to http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.9148.jpg  Revlon Electric Youth by Debbie Gibson and http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.4353.jpg  Coty Ex`cla-ma`tion , for its super-fun scents and bottles. I remember when I saw them as a kid, they both looked so fun but grown up to me (laugh all you want). I absolutely adored them, and admired them from afar (as I wasn't allowed to wear perfume until I was in my mid-teens).

RIP Simon, Oliver & Martin. I'll always love you my little buddies.
